       The blogspam server makes use of	the Blog::Spam::Server module to
       present an XML-RPC server for the use of	testing	comments for spam.

       It is ideally suited for	small and medium sized blogs, forums, and
       similar sites which accept comments from	users and which	may be
       attacked	by the submission of spam comments.

       This script is designed to be started by	a non-privileged user, where
       it will launch an RPC::XML::Server instance listening upon the network.
       By default port 8888 will be used,but this may be changed via the
       appropriate command line	option.

       All state will be stored	in the home directory of the user s-blogspam
       if it exists upon the local system, otherwise in	the current working
       directory beneath a directory named state/.

       In order	to ensure that scheduled tasks are completed it	is strongly
       recommended you add crontab entries, running as the launcher, to	run
       three jobs:

	   # blogspam entries to clear caches, etc.

	   17 *	* * *  s-blogspam  /usr/local/bin/blogspam --hourly
	   20 6	* * *  s-blogspam  /usr/local/bin/blogspam --daily
	   25 6	1 * *  s-blogspam  /usr/local/bin/blogspam --weekly
